Sun Peaks Resort is located near Kamloops, British Columbia, and in the summer months it offers music events, mountain biking, hiking, alpine sightseeing, paddling opportunities, and the highest elevation 18-hole golf course in the province. There are no less than three mountains surrounding the resort’s pedestrian-only village so there’s no shortage of places to play.

The wildflower season is just getting started at Sun Peaks and the same lift that whisks bikers to the top of the mountain also carries hikers, trail runners and alpine sightseers to the goods. You can spend part of a day wandering the slopes to get some floral face time and the rest of your stay can be spent enjoying any number of activities including:

  • hiking any of the other 18 designated trails at the resort
  • paddling the scenic McGillivray Lake (rentals available)
  • fly fishing with professional guides
  • golfing the 18-hole, 6,400-yard course that’s located 1,200 metres above sea level
  • paddlboarding on Heffley Lake
  • sightseeing via an organized walking tour, horseback ride, voyageur canoe, or horse-drawn carriage excursion
  • playing tennis on the pristine courts with Mt. Tod as your backdrop
  • wine touring with TasteFull Excursions
  • shopping in the village
  • dining at the many restaurants and cafés
  • relaxing in the sun. After all, the area receives over 2,000 hours of it annually
